Are some of the pilots strong black lesbians or is this the Chinese friendly version?

I'm setting my expectation low. But it has to be better than Affleck's Pearl Harbor movie.


Yep better not have some crappy ass love story in it. From the previews it up like all war story.


But it also look like they're throwing a lot of crap in there, like Pearl harbor and the Doolittle raid. And if this is just going to be a 2-hour movie. Are they actually going to do justice?

Actually Not that long ago I was pondering the use of American tanks is German stand-ins and some of those older world war II big battle movies. And how they full me as a kid.

So I was watching bridge over Remagen thinking the American tanks were m41 walker bulldog or something, But then when I looked it up they're actually the authentic M24 Chaffee .

Amusingly enough, in the film Patton, they use 1940s/1950s era M46/M47 Patton tanks as stand-ins for various models.

Yes in fact it was that movie I was thinking of. Also some other movie I saw not that long ago, I don't know if it was the devil's brigade or something else but the German tanks were Patton tanks. I believe there's three models M46, M47 and M60. I think you can tell them apart but how the exhaust on some of the models lay across the back of the hull, and The turrets are different, although I've had a cant remember exactly.

The only movie to ever have a real Tiger since 1945 propaganda films is that recent one Fury where they used the one at Bovington. They didn't blow it up, that was all CGI but all the scenes of a Tiger moving in that film are legit.

There's also what was it Force 10 From Navarone where they amusingly use Soviet-era T-34's to play German tanks. I believe they were acquired/lent via Yugoslavia. Which when you think about it does add accuracy, the Germans did employ captured T-34's as often as they could on the Eastern and Balkan theatres.

Saw it today, actually a really well done movie. Mostly kept it straight historically speaking with not that much Hollywooding up.

No Ben Affleck love story here folks, it's classic battle epic stuff.

In total, a worthy successor to the 1974 original.

And it has plenty of planes with droppable bombs.
